American Cancer Society Road To Recovery

Transportation can be one of the biggest roadblocks to cancer treatment. As a volunteer driver for the American Cancer Society Road To Recovery program, you can help provide patients in need with a free ride to treatment.

For those who cannot drive themselves or have no other means of getting to cancer-related medical appointments, volunteers donate their time to give patients a much-needed ride.

A willingness to help - Right now, one of the biggest barriers to cancer care is transportation. Because, even the best treatment can’t work if a patient can’t get there.

Family and friends may help, but over the course of several months, they may not always have the time or resources to provide every ride.

That’s why a successful transportation assistance program can be a tremendous asset to the community, and an inspiration to a volunteer. Our volunteers have provided hundreds of thousands of rides for patients, but the need for drivers continues to accelerate.

How it works
To ensure quality drivers, the American Cancer Society screens every volunteer. They must also complete online training courses to prepare them for their new role.

Mission Statement

For 100 years, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has worked relentlessly to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Together with millions of our supporters worldwide, we help people stay well, help people get well, find cures, and fight back against cancer.

Relay For Life Celebrate.Remember.Fight Back.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to Celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, Remember loved ones lost, and Fight Backagainst the disease.

Each year, more than 4 million people in over 20 countries take part in this global phenomenon and raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer.


Description

At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. The funds you raise truly make a difference in the fight against cancer - just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year!

Relay For Life teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, park, or fairground. Events are up to 24 hours long, and because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.
